This zoo was part of a day tour from Sydney to the Blue Mountains. We really enjoyed getting to see the animals up close, and the park is small enough that we got around to all the exhibits in our allotted time. Petting a koala...More

This park was much more touristy than others we were lucky enough to visit, but as it is just outside of Sydney, this is to bee expected. Contains a great sample of Australian wildlife. Know that you can't hold koalas anywhere in New South Wales.More
